As reported here, Maxine Waters found herself on the receiving end of an insult dashed at her by Bill O’Reilly when he accused her of sporting a James Brown-inspired wig.
I’m a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated. I cannot be undermined. I cannot be thought to be afraid of Bill O’Reilly, or anybody,” she told Hayes. “I’d like to say to women out there everywhere, don’t allow these right-wing talking heads, these dishonorable people, intimidate or scare you.
The incident launched the #BlackWomenAtWork trending topic on Twitter.
